Mercury Prize-nominated FKA twigs is one of a slew of acts just confirmed for Field Day festival in Victoria Park on 6–7 June.
The alternative R&B singer’s performance is set to be a London festival exclusive. She will be joined on the Field Day Saturday line-up by hip-hop duo Run the Jewels, Radiohead drummer Philip Selway, Norwegian producer Todd Terje and father and son pairing Toumani and Sidiki Diabaté.
Last week it was announced that Mac DeMarco, the poster boy for Canadian slacker rock, will be part of the Field Day Sunday line-up, alongside the likes of Patti Smith and Ride. A fuller picture of Sunday line-up has now been revealed, with post-punk outfit Savages, psychedelic five-piece Hookworms and indie rockers Viet Cong all due to perform.
Complementing the live music will be DJ sets from the likes of Awesome Tapes from Africa, Barcelona producer John Talabot and DJ Floating Points.
All these acts and more will feature on Field Day Radio, with Field Day supremo Tom Baker hosting a series of shows over the next couple of months to whet the whistle of festival-goers. The first episode is available here.
